Nine times out of ten the TDC sensor won't throw up a fault code,so it's not neccessary to have the ECU codes cleared.Even if the ECU does have a fault code in the memory,as long as it's getting the right signals from the sensor,then it will be OK.It might be worth having the ECU read if your continuing to have problems.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
